Hello, friends and all artists, creators, and art lovers Greetings. Merry Christmas to you all. MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS #DIYHub community.
This is my entry to the community#DIYhub for a monthly contest and special for Christmas. It is a nice initiative to make active all hivers. It's nice to be creative and think about some new ideas.
Here in Norway, the celebration starts at the end of November, called Advent. At the beginning of December, all the houses are decorated with lights and many different decorations including a wreath that hangs on the door. They can be made from different materials such as fresh evergreen branches like pine and juniper. decorate with pine cones, acorns, and red dry berries, more natural materials. Nowadays people buy in shops with many possibilities with different materials. They are very expensive to buy in the flower shops. I was examining those different wreaths with the notion of making them as gifts to my friends.
the wreath I present here is my first try.

Material:
freshly picked small pine branches
freshly picked juniper branches
some branches from Evergreen bushes in the garden
pine cone, acorns, wood shavings
All I collected whenever we walked in the forest or visited some places.
The jute string
Weaving thread
Decoration threads
glitter
plastic beads string
Scissors
Glue gun
an old round plastic cookie box

I started making ring by tying the small pieces of evergreen branches together using the weaving thread.

But the shape wasn't perfectly round.

I thought for a moment about what I had that I could use to hold the form stiff and round. I found an old cookie box from last year's Christmas and cut away the top section of it to make a ring.

Just putting things together and planning what to do.

Here comes the helper glue gun.

Using the glue gun I added the wood shavings to hide the jute patches

Some pine leaves are fixed inside the ring to hide red plastic.

Attached pine cones and acorns at suitable places using a glue gun.

When I am doing something I am in my own world and sometimes forget to take a photo. to make the hanging ribbon using a toothpick I inserted ribbon under the jute string targeting the center and making a knot.

Sprinkled glitter and glitter threads on the wreath.

It is almost finished but needs some trimming around the edge

Very careful to trim around in details

Here is my finished natural and long-lasting Christmas wreath.
MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.
